Feverishly trying to escape
the night and the darkness within
trying to run from memory
wanting to forget the sin
the tear drops are all dried up
but the rain comes down in buckets
and the anger rages deep in side
with random exclamations of "fuck it"
some alters are angry and showing it off
and others scared and hiding
still more feel they must walk the night
rather than opening up and confiding
there’s so much pressure to just be ok
while a violent wind swirls around
and there’s nothing a little girl can do
in still darkness without a sound
